The Alzheimer’s Society will be running Singing for the Brain sessions at Grindon Church Community Project in Galway Road on the third Monday of every month from 2pm to 4pm, starting on September 19. These will be stimulating sessions for people in the early to moderate stages of dementia, and their carers, which can help with general well-being and confidence. You’ll meet others with similar experiences in a relaxed setting, and can join in a variety of songs, as much or as little as you like. The groups are run by friendly staff and volunteers, and are led by a trained Singing for the Brain leader. More details from Sunderland Alzheimer’s Society on 0191 564 0890 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Northern Storm Cheerleaders meet at Grindon Church Community Project on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays – see their Facebook page for details of sessions.
